Double Feature

Avid cinephiles among the readership have another chance to listen to the Cineaste & I talking about film on Radio Cumbria at about 10:00am GMT tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. We'll be covering current mainstream releases - as well as local independents and film clubs. And with stuff on release like Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, in which Helena Bonham-Carter gives a completely lifeless performance, expect some serious disagreement between us. If you're outside Cumbria at the time you can listen to the show live via this link (RealPlayer required).

Guile - I'm afraid I don't agree. I'm one of those people who just doesn't 'get' Burton's aesthetic - and the animation is appalling, a gawping, idiotic pardoy of human emotions that doesn't allow the viewer any emotional engagement with the characters - a pretty tough proposition when you've got 90 minutes of plot to drive . . . But I'm sure I'm in the minority.
